NAME         top

       pcp-kube-pods - list Kubernetes pods to scan for running PCP services

SYNOPSIS         top


DESCRIPTION         top

       pcp-kube-pods uses kubectl(1) to provide a list of IP addresses for
       PODs running in a local Kubenetes cluster, that may be running PCP
       services like pmcd(1) and pmproxy(1).

       It is used by the pmfind(1) command and the pmDiscoverServices(3) API
       as a ``shell'' command.

       The script invokes the kubectl get pod command line (see
       kubectl-get(1)) to discover IP addresses for pods.  The .status.podIP
       output field is extracted from the Kubernetes pod object(s).
       Additional options can be specified via configuration file, such as
       -l service=database to restrict the results using Kubernetes pod
       labels.  The default configuration file is

       If no local kubectl command is found, nothing is reported and an exit
       code indicating success is returned.

DIAGNOSTICS         top

       All diagnostics produced are provided by the kubectl command.

       The kubectl exit status is propogated unchanged.

            existence of this file causes the script to report nothing


       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to parameterize
       the file and directory names used by PCP.  On each installation, the
       file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values for these variables.
       The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to specify an alternative
       configuration file, as described in pcp.conf(5).
